Benghazi hearing before congressional committee

The US House Oversight Committee Wednesday heard State Department “whistleblowers” testify that administration officials were unresponsive in the critical hours of the terrorist attack on the US consulate in Benghazi Libya last Sept. 11. Four Americans were killed including Ambassador Chris Stevens. The testimony was given by Eric Nordstrom, a former regional security officer in Libya; Mark Thompson, the State Department's acting deputy assistant secretary for counterterrorism; and Gregory Hicks, the former deputy chief of mission in Libya.

Republican Committee chairman Rep. Darrel Issa said: Our goal "is to get answers because their families (of the victims) deserve answers."
